Kowloon at Night Stop Motion Video

Kowloon at Night Stop Motion from Bohemian Traveler on Vimeo.


After the success of last year’s A Day in Bangkok Stop Motion Video, I thought it would be fun to do another stop-motion video in another city. This time around we went to Hong Kong. Kowloon is the section of Hong Kong located across the harbor from the skyline of Hong Kong Island. It’s known for its bright lights, shopping, and food.

The name Kowloon stems from the nine dragons, a term which refers to eight mountains and a Chinese emperor: Kowloon Peak, Tung Shan, Tate’s Cairn, Temple Hill, Unicorn Ridge, Lion Rock, Beacon Hill, Crow’s Nest and Emperor Bing (Song Dynasty). With population of over two million, Kowloon is one of the most densely populated urban areas on earth.

I created the stop-motion video with my own photos as well as those of Juno Kim of Mastering the Art of Travel Photography.

    Great video, you make me miss Hong Kong! Wish I was still there. Although a crowded city, I never once felt out of place – people are respectful and nice!

    Love the added touch of how the video goes backwards!

    @Michael Thanks for the feedback. Stay tuned for more videos…
